Fantastic honeymoon in Egypt!
The sunrise royal resort in makadi bay is literally fantastic! We're already trying to plan a return visit as soon as we can but this time with our 3 children!
We booked for 7 nights of 5 star luxury without the children for our honeymoon, and it was exactly that. All the restaurants (7 all a carte and 1 main) are fantastic, the food is great, the service is un real, the rooms are nice, the air con is fab, the beach and pool and all the grounds are spotless.. Everything is lovely, it was the best all inclusive holiday we have Ever been on. We went the last week of April and it was 33 degrees every day, and it was beautiful. We will without a doubt be recommending it to friends, and family, and we are definitely going to return.

After a 4 hour delay at Gatwick we just wanted to get there!
We arrived and were not disappointed. The Reception area of the hotel was stunning and we were taken for our AI bands to be fitted then onto our rooms. We had booked a Family room and it was fab. 2 big bedrooms and a large shower room in the middle. We had a TV in each room, a fridge, a safe and wardrobe space. There were toiletries in the shower room too. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets were crisp and as you would expect in Egypt. We chose to have our breakfast in the Mexican. We found this less busy and still with a great selection. The Mexican restuarant staff were lovely and always very attentive. The pools were quite cold the first week of our holiday, really I think the heaters should have been left on an extra week. El at the Family pool 2 was a fabulous barman and he really looked after us. I can recommend the Pharoahs Breakfast Cocktail my favourite. Cocktails are available at every bar and restaurant. It is a very good AI hotel and the drinks are very good. My children were 10 and 8 and they had a great holiday. They loved the shows in the evening. The hotel and surroundings are spotlessly clean and tended to all day long. We booked the glass bottom boat trip from the pier and had a lovely morning out. The kids loved it too. We also did the Sand Buggies trip with Thomas Cook and we loved it. Drive your own buggy though, passengers might feel a bit sick. We had a good flight home with no delays thankfully. We met some lovely friends there. We hope to go back but so far the cost has gone up considerably so we will have to see. I would recommend this hotel to all, singles, couples, families. If you want good food, weather, beach and a good tan this is the place to go.

Fantastic 2 week stay!
Not long got back from an amazing holiday at the Royal Sunrise Makadi resort.
The food was brilliant, especially at the Asian resturaunt! Also really enjoyed the T-Bones and the Mexican restaurant. The booking system for the extra restaurants worked really well and a bonus; you wasn't restricted to any resturaunt per week! We managed to get in the Asian resturaunt for the last 3 days of our holiday as it was the family's favourite. The Mexican restaurant was also open for breakfast times which I would definitely recommend to those looking for a slightly quieter breakfast as the main resturaunt always seemed very busy (as to be expected with a big resort).
The staff at the hotel were brilliant, not once did we come accross a rude member of staff! From the cleaners, to the reception staff to the waiters, everyone was great. The rep for Thomas Cook was also lovely, always willing to help and offering his services to the best of his ability.
The rooms were always cleaned everyday to a good standard and were very spacious!
For good snorkelling, I would recommend walking down to the beach bar and turning left (past the select area of the resort) and go into the sea off of next doors beach - you're unable to leave belongings on this beach but can go into the sea and there are some lovely fish, it's a 5 minute walk from the main pool near the main resturaunt.
And finally... The best part of our holiday... The animation team! In particular Marley, Kareem, Ghazal and MeeDaa! These guys made our holiday brilliant and one to remember! I would definitely return to this hotel with how great these guys were!

Great family holiday
Had a great time time at this hotel, cannot fault anything apart from the main Buffett restaurant which was very chaotic but you can book into the a la cartes as many times as you like.
The entertainment team were amazing and made our holiday!

Bad time But maybe good for some.
Rooms are basic cleaned daily, we had storms thunder lightening rain like I've never seen before, windy, night entertainment was outdoors and it was cold.
Main restaurant for food was varied meat fish pasta salads cheeses, breakfast was a variety of things including chillie con carne and other various meals you would not dream of having for breakfast.
Due to weather conditions the hotels a la carte restaurants roofs collapsed and flooded peoples rooms were getting flooded it was terrible.
we ate in T Bones A La Carte which was really nice and the Indian was ok Mexican was not very nice, the others we could not try because of the damage.
One heated pool the others was freezing cold.
The hotel itself is very nice and are the staff,, they do all they can for you to make you happy.
The manager at the time was Mr Hashim and he was really lovely and tried his best to put things right.
For saying The weather was so bad and what the hotel suffered they did cope really well.
Animation are really entertaining and work very hard to maintain you have a good holiday day and night. Any problems they will do their best to solve them for you. Just the wrong time and pure bad luck our holiday was not a good one.
